Josie Gibson can’t stop screaming while conducting an interview aboard a swinging pirate ship ride


She is famed for her down to earth personality and hilarious mishaps. 

And on Thursday for a segment on This Morning, Josie Gibson sat aboard a pirate ship at Legoland to conduct an interview, but was unable to stop screaming when the ride unexpectedly swung into action.  

The Big Brother star, 35, was posing questions to the theme park’s operations manager Kate while Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford watched the hilarious action from the safety of the television studio.  

Yikes! During Thursday’s This Morning, Josie Gibson, 35, sat aboard a pirate ship at Legoland to conduct an interview, but was unable to stop screaming when the ride swung into action

Sitting aboard an open gondola which swung back and forth, while trying to maintain her composure and ask questions, Josie was unable to stop herself having dramatic outbursts.

And the end of the interview, the reality star insisted: ‘They told me they weren’t gonna start the ride. They told me it was gonna be smooth sailing. They completely lied to me!’

Viewers took to social media to voice their joy over the segment, with one tweeting: ‘@thismorning can we please put Josie in every theme park in Britain as it opens it really makes me laugh in the morning.’

‘Josie on the Jolly Roger! very funny! sorry josie it was gonna happen as soon as you sat at the back! Thanks for the laugh xxx,’ tweeted another.

‘Josie Gibson at legoland on @thismorning was the highlight of my morning! Plain sailing indeed,’ tweeted another viewer. 

On Thursday, Josie was up to her old tricks once more as she appeared on This Morning for a ghost hunting segment where she was sporting a Ghostbusters costume, which unfortunately split at the crotch. 

The reality star was chatting to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, who were in the studio, when the latter pointed out that her underwear was on show, which led to one viewer alleging she was ‘throwing Josie under the bus’.

Holly seemed baffled by the outfit malfunction, as she first asked Phil if the rip was there before caving and asking Josie. 

She said: ‘Now, I’m just going to ask you this, just from an outfit point of view. You’ve got a split there – was that from some overzealous ghostbusting?’

Josie explained that the rip had come about when she was on her way to filming the segment and only realised while filling up her car with petrol.  

Fans were left delighted at the hilarious turn of events, as viewers swarmed Twitter to pen: ‘Josie Gibson is a national treasure and I won’t have a bad word said about her Face with tears of joyFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy…

‘Josie Gibson splitting out of her Ghostbusters outfit is all I need to see today #ThisMorning’.

While many were tickled by the gaffe, one fan was begrudging of Holly highlighting Josie’s mishap, although Josie did not seem bothered at all. 

The This Morning viewer wrote: ‘Why would @hollywills throw her under the bus like that? Women are supposed to lift each other, not embarrass each other. I really expected better to be honest.’

Big Brother: Chantelle Houghton’s ‘I Want It All’ to be released


I Want It All – the ‘fake pop song’ made famous by ‘fake celebrity’ Chantelle Houghton on Celebrity Big Brother 4 – is being officially released, after fans demanded it.

Viewers of the iconic reality series got to re-watch the song being performed on a recent edition of Big Brother: Best Shows Ever and flocked to Twitter to implore producers to make it available to stream.

And from Friday, the track will be downloadable on Spotify, thanks to Universal Music Group.

It’s a hit! I Want It All – the ‘fake pop song’ made famous by ‘fake celebrity’ Chantelle Houghton on Celebrity Big Brother 4 – is being officially released, after fans demanded it

The track came about when Chantelle was sent into the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2006 tasked with tricking the famous residents into believing she was part of fictitious girl band Kandy Floss.

Chantelle had to perform their ‘hit-song’ I Want It All, which helped secure her place in the house, and ultimately win the series.

After the re-airing of the episode last week, Big Brother has listened to the demand for the song and have decided to release it.

A playlist titled Big Brother: Best Songs Ever, inspired by the music used in Big Brother across the past 20 years, can be streamed too.

Davina McCall and Rylan Clark-Neal have been digging through the archives of the show, plucking their favourite instalments from the surveillance series as it celebrates its 20th birthday.

As well as being able to re-watch the moment Chantelle was forced to sing the fake pop song, fans have witnessed other classic moments, such as George Galloway and Rula Lenska’s cat reenactment, Ivana Trump’s shock entrance to the CBB house, and Nikki Grahame’s infamous ‘Who Is She?’ tantrum. 

But it was Chantelle’s perfomance that had fans feeling the most nostalgic, as she watched the non-singer murder the track in front of the other housemates, which included the likes of Pete Burns, Jodie Marsh and singer Preston, who she ended up getting married to.

Chantelle belted out the song, although famously clutched hold of the lyrics as she did so and failed to hold a tune.

Big Brother fans enjoy Jackie Stallone’s memorable 2005 stint


‘She’s the image of me leaving the house post lockdown!’: Big Brother fans go wild for Jackie Stallone, 98, as her iconic 2005 stint is re-aired on Best Shows Ever

Big Brother fans were delighted when they were able to re-live Jackie Stallone’s iconic stint on the 2005 celebrity edition on Thursday’s Best Shows Ever.

The mother of screen legend Sylvester Stallone, 98, went down in reality TV history when she had an infamous run-in with Brigitte Nielson, who was married to Sly from 1985 until 1987, on the show.

Brigitte’s jaw dropped when her former mother-in-law walked into the shared house as a surprise ninth guest and in the now iconic scene Brigitte exclaimed: ‘Oh my god, Jackie!’ to which Jackie – wrapped in a glamorous fur coat – replied, ‘Yeah, Jackie’.

‘She’s the image of me leaving the house post lockdown!’: Big Brother fans went wild for Jackie Stallone, 98, as her iconic 2005 stint was re-aired on Thursday night’s Best Shows Ever

At the time Jackie was reported to not like Brigitte who she hadn’t seen since 1987 when her son divorced the actress.  

After showing her entrance on the show, co-hosts Davina McCall and Rylan Clark-Neal presented her first day in the house, which she spent mostly asleep or lounging around the house declaring she was ‘bored’.  

Jackie claimed she didn’t know what the show was about before entering the house and said she thought she’d be on the show with ‘eight of the best people in England’.

While in the diary room, Jackie also demanded Big Brother to provide wine and a harpist for dinner as she thought the show needed ‘more culture’ rather than showing ‘eight bored people’ on screen.’

When asked about her thoughts on being with Brigitte, Jackie said: ‘I think she’s lovely, I have nothing against her she was married to my son that’s her problem… the fact is she’s very lovely she just cooked dinner today, and a very fine dinner.

‘She said she’s cooking another dinner tomorrow, she’s been very kind to me. But that’s not the issue here, Brigitte is not the issue here… I insist I have a glass of wine with my dinner…  can’t you bring a harpist in here?’

One joked: ‘Jackie Stallone walking into the Big Brother house is a mirror image of me leaving my house post lockdown.’

While another claimed: ‘Jackie is in her own little world and couldn’t care less that she’s on Big Brother…she’s off to bed…’

Another fan gushed: ‘There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t go ‘yeah, Jackie’ and it’s so good now more people will know why I say it!’

While one said of the astrologist’s stint on the show: ‘Everything Jackie Stallone was pure gold in this series.’

Big Brother: Stars of classic show talk about their experiences


Big Brother stars Nikki Grahame, Imogen Thomas, Alison Hammond and Craig Phillips have discussed the reality series to celebrate its 20th anniversary. 

Nikki, 38, who appeared on series seven of the controversial show in 2006, has claimed that Love Island stars will never be ‘household names’ like they were.

While Imogen, 37, who soared to fame on the same season, admitted that the show has made dating ‘harder’ as suitors don’t want to be in the public eye.

Talking to Cosmopolitan UK, Nikki said: ‘Big Brother used to be a social experiment; nobody had a clue what to expect when they left. I was certain I was going to fall in love in there and I might get pictured in Heat magazine falling out of a club. 

‘I had no idea I’d get an agent. It was a complete whirlwind. On my first photoshoot they gave me a pair of shoes and a dress to keep and I didn’t understand it, but it made me feel quite special.’

The star went on to discuss how Love Island stars now make ‘crazy money’ in seconds but they will never be ‘household names’.

She added: ‘Now they come out of Love Island and have agents and an Instagram following – we didn’t even have Facebook when we left!

‘Today’s [reality] stars make crazy money in seconds, but they’ll never be household names. You know what you’re getting yourself into when doing the show.’

During her time in the Big Brother house, Nikki dated fellow contestant Pete Bennett who went on to win the 2006 series. 

Discussing their high-profile and whirlwind romance, she continued: ‘I got to see a therapist for as long as I needed it, I spoke to one for about a year. 

‘I went into a reality show as an experiment and as a huge fan of the show, and got enormous success. When Pete and I broke up it was really hard.’

She added: ‘There are good and bad bits, but the ups outweigh the downs. People come up to me all the time and are always really nice. I’ve got a flat, and I don’t have to do a 9-5 job. 

‘But it’s refreshing to be somewhere you’re not recognised. My goal is to live in Australia and start again. I have no regrets; I’ve had the time of my life. Actually, I do have one: I would have won Big Brother.’

Meanwhile Imogen, who recently split from partner Adam Horsley, who she shares two children with – Ariana and Siera, spoke about how the show has affected her dating life with the magazine. 

She said: ‘It’s still nice to be recognised, and you miss it when it stops. It makes it harder with relationships as a lot of guys don’t want the attention that comes with dating me.

‘But I have no regrets. I’m still really good friends with Nikki [Grahame] and we go on holiday together.’

Discussing how the show impacted her life, she added: ‘My life now is so different to the one I had growing up on a council estate. I’m really grateful for Big Brother. 

‘Before the show I was living off loans and an overdraft. After it, I was modelling and earning up to £70,000 a shoot. I invested it all in property because I knew then that things don’t last forever.’

Imogen also spoke about the instant fame that comes with Love Island, she continued: ‘If you don’t have a real talent, going on Love Island could be great, but it comes with a stigma – fame is hard.

‘What are you going to do when you’re not wanted any more? Reality stars have a maximum of six months to “make it”. The depression comes once you’ve made a little bit of money and have to go back to a normal job.’  

Alison Hammond, 45, who has established a successful presenting career on This Morning since appearing on the show in 2002, told the magazine that she ‘wouldn’t change’ a thing.

She said: ‘I couldn’t change a thing because I think the fact that I was evicted after week two and I didn’t last until the end was all in the stars. I remember the producer of This Morning said that he never watched Big Brother and he watched my eviction tape. 

‘Now, if I had been evicted a little bit later down the line, he probably would never have seen my eviction tape, so I never would have got the job with This Morning and I never probably would have had the career that I had.

‘So, do you know what? I would change nothing. Maybe I’d be a little bit less crass. Sometimes I was a little bit crass, I’m not going to lie.

‘I saw a video of me trumping. I wasn’t too keen on that, but you know, I was young. It’s one of those things. And do you know something? We all trump.’

While Craig Phillips, 48, who won the first ever series of Big Brother in 2000, admitted that he thought he would be at work the following week but instead didn’t return home for 97 days.

He told the magazine: ‘I thought, “If I get one local newspaper article out of it, then that’s good.” I really did think I’d be back on the building site the following Monday. 

‘But when I won, I was on the cover of every paper. I didn’t go home for 97 days. I had a police escort.’

Although Craig admitted he found the experience ‘lonely’ as he didn’t ‘feel like his friends were anywhere.’

He continued: ‘I had great mates before and I do now, but I was being chaperoned around by people paid to be there: drivers, bodyguards, press officers, managers. I didn’t feel like my friends were anywhere.

‘I had thousands of people wanting to meet me and making banners wherever I went, but I’ve never felt so lonely. I wanted all the hype to die down so I could see my family.

‘I’d had the opposite experience to [Nasty] Nick – the press were horrifically harsh to him. We were lured into a trap; it was manufactured and I know the pressures of that. 

I’m not a lover of reality TV now – Love Island is Big Brother on steroids. People who get a taste of fame want more, and the people who have too much don’t want it.’

Five years ago, the TV star revealed he was homeless after battling an addiction to ketamine. 

The actor has insisted he’s come a long way from his dark times as he said: ‘I was going to raves and was on acid when I applied for Big Brother, I’m not doing drugs much now. You can now see my lips.’ 

Pete, who has Tourette’s syndrome, also said he gained confidence from the programme after being ridiculed for his condition as a teen. 

He explained: ‘I was bullied before I went into the show for calling people w*****s because of my Tourettes.’

WHAT IS TOURETTE’S SYNDROME?

Tourette’s syndrome is a neurological condition characterised by a combination of involuntary noises and movements called tics.

It usually starts during childhood and continues into adulthood. Tics can be either be vocal or physical.

In many cases Tourette’s syndrome runs in families and it’s often associated with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Tourette’s syndrome is named after the French doctor, Georges Gilles de la Tourette, who first described the syndrome and its symptoms in the 19th century. 

There’s no cure for Tourette’s syndrome, but treatment can help to control the symptoms.

Pete confessed he feels ‘bothered’ that his ex-girlfriend, 38, is often considered as the ‘main focus’ when people reflect on their famous edition. 

He said: ‘I fancied her and thought I would give it a go, there was a spark. It was a whirlwind, weird kind of romance.

‘I was meant to do Ultimate Big Brother, I had my meeting with the BB shrink but a week after they dropped me. I was in a dark place. My friend had died of cancer; it was a pick-me-up that got taken away from me.

‘Nikki is now always the main focus, yeah it bothers me. I wish they would plug me. I lift people’s spirits. I feel left out. I won the show, not her.’

Pete is now keeping busy by working with comedian Catherine Tate on her new film, Nan: The Movie.

Winning the 52-year-old writer over with his wit, he shared: ‘I went into the audition room and called her a ginger – I got the part.’
